adali doesn't start school for a few more weeks so we are still fully engrossed in summer time shenanigans.  trust me, i'm holding on to every last bit of summer with all of my might.  and seeing as it's still officially summer, i still have a little bit of time to post all of our fun summer times thus far.  

last month we were fortunate enough to be able to take 2 consecutive weeks of vacation.  let me just say, it was niiiice.  

week one was spent with jastin's family at big cedar lodge.  i feel like this is the 5000th time i have posted about our times here but every time boasts new adventures and good times.  i simply can't get enough of the place and it's natural beauty.

there was LOTS of pool time.  literally the first words out of adali's mouth every morning after she woke up was, "i want to get my swim suit on."  i happily obliged.

the scooters made a comeback this year.  really there's no better way to get around the grounds than on the buddy.  if only i could convince adali that she's not quite old enough for them.  soon enough, little one, soon enough.

i sadly had to keep my distance from frosty's this year.  pregnant jamie + sugar = hours of misery.

the big boys liked to play catch with the older kids.

i managed to sneak away with jastin and his dad one morning for a quick round of golf.  even though we had to play super early to beat the scorching heat, it was sooo nice to be on the course!

and not a bad round of golf for 16 weeks pregnant.

adali had to practice all things learned earlier in the summer during swim lessons.

and she always managed to wear her goggles…mostly outside of the pool.

and by far her favorite activity this year…boating.  the kid could not get enough of it.

ya think she's in heaven?

she even went tubing with daddy!  i couldn't believe she actually followed through on this after begging to go.  she begged to go skiing as well but i doubt they make skis small enough for her tiny size 6 foot.  i, of course, was beaming.  all the more reason for us to have a lake house one day {wink}.

these two are trouble when they get together.  pure trouble.

and as i said in a previous post, i always get sad to have to leave this beautiful place but this year, knowing we were headed for another week of relaxation, made it a little bit easier to say goodbye.
